Job centre tie-in with council


FORT WILLIAM’S Job Centre Plus is to share premises with the Highland Council when it moves to new offices on Achintore Road.

At least 50 centres are being merged with local authorities as part of plans to reform Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) Job Centre Plus off ces and benefit centres as 20 per cent of off ce space is being under-used. This is partly due to more people accessing services online and UK employment rates being at an all-time high. The DWP stressed that as this is a re-location, rather than a closure, there should be no loss of jobs or services. It is not yet known when the move will happen but work is currently ongoing on the new council off ces.
